FZ200 Lens Flare Issue
Apr 7, 2014

I recent purchased the FZ200 and took it out today for the first shoot.  While I like many features of the camera, the lens flare is the worst of any camera I've owned.  Granted, I was shooting toward the sun in these images, but I've never had flare like this - and I have used the FZ50 extensively.  The FZ200 advertises a "nano surface coating" to minimize lens flare - but the results seem to contradict this promotion.  (I was shooting with no filter and no lens hood.)

Has anyone else noticed this?  Is this something that you think the lens hood would improve?
